This video lays it out in simple language.

I'd no idea we caused so much trouble.

Thanks for the repost -- I love this song! Maybe I have a perverse sense of humor, but I laugh my ass off every time I watch this video!!! ;^)

Hey Scot!

Yeah, from what I can tell, you and your family are grave, grave threats to Our Way of Life™.

Hi Chanson!

I think this video is right on target. I laugh every time I watch it, too. (Plus, I think the lead is really cute.)

Tee hee!

Actually, if I understand the argument against gay marriage, it's essentially that gay marriage gives gay folks an option other than opposite-sex marriage. In other words, the marriages that are being "undermined" are MOM's.

It took me a long time to divine this. The proponents of this argument generally shy away from saying so in so many words... To argue this, of course, forces a discussion of the etiology of homosexuality (a complicated topic), and also begs for more nuanced discussions about the relationship between healthy sexual intimacy and long-term relationship success, etc. Neither of these discussions are really amenable to the sound-bite-style discussions that are the norm in American political debate...
